It's down to the wire now for the five contenders who have been shortlisted for the ultimate individual accolade in northern hemisphere rugby, ERC European Player of the Year 2013.
Bath winger Nick Abendanon scampered over in the 10th minute to give thevisitors an early lead, and despite losing veteran fullback Matt Perry to injury, extended their lead through the boot of Ollie Barkley.
Abendanon added a second try on the half-hour mark, and Barkley and Adrian Jarvis (three) swapped penalty goals as Bath took a 16-9 lead into the break. Jarvis kicked his fourth, fifth and sixth goals to give the home side the lead for the first time in the match, but it lasted barely a minute as Barkley slotted his third.
Quins coach Dean Richards threw on his entire bench in a desperate attempt to steal a victory, but it was left to the rugged Maddock to punch a hole in the tiring home defence in the last minute of regulation time.
At Sixways Stadium, Worcester's front-row did all the damage as the Warriorscruised to a 29-0 result in Pool 5.
Back-rower Will Bowley, prop Darren Morris and hooker Aleki Lutui scored three of their side's five tries, and the win means the winners of the Worcester-Clermont Auvergne clash at Sixways in the second weekend of 2007 will have at least one foot into the Cup quarter-finals.
Worcester opened the scoring in the 10th minute through Bowley, and winger Mark Tucker's effort moments later ensured a long day at the office for the French side.
Former Wales prop Morris was the next home player to trundle over the try-line, and the penalty try that handed the Warriors a bonus point took the score to 24-0 moments after the resumption.
In Pool 3, leaders Brive smashed Italian visitors Petrarca 78-18, with 19-year-old Alexis Palisson scoring a hat-trick of tries in an rather one-sided affair.
Fijian winger Norman Ligairi added a brace of tries, with outside-half Maxime Petitjean converting eight of the French club's 12 scores.
Petrarca were staring at a 47-3 scoreline at the break, but scored through centre Martin Acuna and backrower Andrea Bresolin to at least get into double figures.
